Pratt and his friends sit on some bleachers, drinking from bottles in paper bags and making fun of each other. Pratt wants to leave, because he has to get up in the morning. One of the friends pulls a gun from his waistband, and everyone tells him to put it away. Pratt, in particular, is looking around, worried that a cop or someone might see them. The idiot friend tries to shoot out a streetlight, and everyone yells at him. He keeps shooting, and finally succeeds. A police siren goes off, and the guys take off running through the field. I guess the point of that was to show how far Pratt has come, but don't we already know that?
Shane West stands outside Eugene's room and watches him through the door, and then takes a deep breath and walks inside. He asks Eugene how he's doing, and Eugene doesn't answer. Shane says that he really wishes Eugene had told him what happened, pauses for a moment, and then adds that he wishes he'd asked. Eugene doesn't say anything. Shane asks if Eugene is tired, and Eugene says no. Shane sits down and says that he'll stick around until Eugene's mother gets there. Eugene notices Shane's guitar and asks, "You a musician?" Shane sighs and says, "Not tonight, man." I hope the writers make Shane West into less of a prick. I might even start calling him "Ray" if they do.
Susan sits on her couch at home, an empty glass of wine in front of her, and stares into space, looking incredibly sad. Chuck enters the room with a fresh bottle of wine, and uncorks it, pouring them each a glass. He tells her that "Weaver and that tenure board can kiss [his] big, white, semi-hairy ass." Susan cracks up and says she shouldn't have gotten their hopes up. Chuck promises that they'll be fine. Susan says she had the money spent on a house, a college fund, and a vacation. Chuck promises that they'll figure it out. Susan says that she really wanted this. Chuck says that he knows she did, and hugs her. Aw.
Carter sits outside the hospital and calls Kem on his cell phone. He tells her that he got awarded tenure today. He doesn't sound very psyched about it, and has to tell her that it's very nice. He continues to talk to her, laughing, and tells her that he misses her.
